The quantitative impact of the arts has become an increasingly important factor in determining the overall value of a project and is often used to determine the acceptance of submissions, public recognition and funding disbursement. I am filming a documentary that will alternatively study the qualitative impact of the arts, determine if it can be measured and explore how qualitative reasoning can be utilized to communicate the value of supporting artistic endeavors. This project, through the documentation of events and conduction of interviews within the city of Louisville, aims to explore the implications of relying on facts and figures to evaluate something that is driven by human experience.
